After more than 40 years in the field, MDE-LIO Supervisor Collette Bauman will retire on December 14, 2017. She wrote the following message for friends and colleagues:

I truly appreciate the support and teamwork from so many of you. I know the students in the State of Michigan are in good hands. Please always remember, “it’s all about the kids!”

It has been such a privilege to have been a teacher in Livonia for 20 years, the supervisor for 10, and now 12.9 years at MDE-LIO. I have so many fond memories of my students, their parents, and co-workers that I will cherish forever!

Thanks to all of you and best wishes!
